Researchers from Denmark found: foods high in fats slow down the aging process of the brain. Fatty acids reduce the risk of developing Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease, says Zee News.
The lack of fat disrupts metabolic processes in the body. Brain thus suffers no less than all other systems. Scientists conducted an experiment with laboratory mice, which was artificially induced syndrome Cockayne. Adding to the diet of animals large quantities of fatty acids their coconut oil helped to slow down the degenerative processes of the nervous system.
The nervous system is the most demanding of the flow of energy. First spent carbohydrates, then fats. The body uses ketones (derivatives of fats as an energy source. While the mechanisms of the influence of fat on the brain, little is known. Research in this area continues.
